controlling the jboss instance which serves the incoming request on Apache

I have successfully configured Apache on port 80/ 443 to front JBoss on port 8080.

In the server xml on the jboss side, I have added the APJ connector and jvmRoute attribute to the Engine element to achieve the same.

In this setup, I can add more Jboss server (on different machines) and appropriate jvmRoute values to achieve load-balancing.

But I am NOT targetting load balancing!

I want to use this single Apache server to front a TWO Jboss server,
one a DEV instance and another the QA instance.
the application runing on both Jboss servers is the same, but connects to appropriate DEV and QA databases.

What can be done, to control the route the traffic takes?

I want some requests originating
1. from some machine (which I call DEV machines) to be routed to the DEV Jboss server instance
2. and some requests originating from "designated QA machines" to be routed to the QA Jboss server instance.

is this possible?

Again I am NOT targetting load balancing, I want to do the above so that I can reuse the Apache server, SSL certificate and the publicly registered domain for QA and DEV.

Thank you
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
